Topic: Ritual, Social Organization, and Monumental Architecture: A Case Study of Monumental Tombs in the Göksu Valley, Turkey

This paper presents a newly discovered temple tomb from the site of Dağpazarı in Southeastern Turkey in the context of its historical, social, and regional settings. It discusses the development of monumental architecture in ancient Anatolia, the ritual process of the Roman funeral and its relationship to monumental architecture, Roman tomb forms of the region during the second century A.D., and suggestions for architectural reconstruction of the Dağpazarı temple tomb.
